I don’t get it.
Out of the 800 qualifiers played over two and a half years, FIFA picked 6 games as the best qualifiers from the road to Brazil, and Lebanon’s awesome victory over Korea in 2011 was one of them.
Here are the other 5 games chosen by FIFA:
American Samoa 2-1 Tonga, 22 November 2011
Colombia 3-3 Chile, 11 October 2013
Ghana 6-1 Egypt, 15 October 2013
Panama 2-3 USA, 15 October 2013
Sweden 2-3 Portugal, 19 November 2013
I spotted these drawing during Gemmayze’s car free day on Sunday. I have no idea who’s behind them but they’re awesome!
Zaatar W Zeit started charging delivery charges few months back, then Roadster Diner and Deek Duke followed. The charge is 2000 Lebanese Lira regardless of the distance and was set to maintain the quality of the delivery service, as I was told by all three restaurants.
Honestly, Zaatar W Zeit is the only one of these three that needed an improvement in the delivery service and I haven’t seen any major improvements ever since the charges were implemented. Roadster and Deek Duke have a perfect delivery system so the delivery charges are unjustified to me. In fact, it is letting customers tip the delivery guy less because they’re being charged for the service, so unless the charges are going to these guys or they got some raise, they won’t be too happy about it and quality will eventually drop.
Nothing surprising here. Check out the full [list].
Zacharias Faour is only 15 years old and has already been dubbed as the new Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Chelsea, Real Madrid, Liverpool and Juventus were interested in him but he ended up signing with Manchester City. If you are not a Football fan and don’t know who Ibrahimovic is, he’s one of the most talented Football players in the world and some of his goals are unbelievable, specially this one against England.
According to Lebanese Blogger Figo29 who originally posted about this young talent, Zacharias Faour has Lebanese Origins (His Father is Lebanese) and can play for either Lebanon or Sweden.
ManCity ranked Faour as one of the world’s best players who were born in 1998, so let’s wish him the best of luck and hope he becomes as good or even better than Ibra.
Earlier in November, Lebanese scientists have joined with a host of officials and researchers in the region in declaring nargileh smoking a “global epidemic”. [Source]
I think we all agree that smoking is bad but the problem lies elsewhere in Lebanon. There are way too many Shisha cafes and the Arguile is cheap and accessible to everyone (No Age Restriction). Added to that, there’s no control on the cleanliness of the Arguile and its pipes and Hookah deliveries are allowed. What I believe should be done is restricting the number of Shisha cafes, or at least banning new Shisha lounges from opening, increasing the price of an Arguile drastically (200%) and fining restaurants who offer them to minors.
The heads of the armed groups in Tripoli (Aka قادة المحاور) held a meeting earlier this morning and agreed to install new signs across Tripoli to keep civilians away from the dangerous zones. This agreement was praised by all militiamen and specially snipers who won’t be responsible anymore for shooting innocent civilians if these civilians were trespassing on sniper property. One of the militiamen expressed his joy by donating a huge banner to alert the citizens of snipers before the sign is placed.
The Lebanese Authorities hailed this agreement and asked Tripoli residents to respect the new signs and stop blaming the armed groups for endangering their lives. They also promised to finance part of their installation.
